.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomorrow and see how that works out. i am certain the images that you are showing on the screen this morning are not representative of the views of the governments and the peoples of those countries. i don't think they want to see this, their countries descend in chaos. >> steve: you were the director of the national intelligence agency, we didn't see this coming, how is that possible in >> first of all as you recall in the arab pring and what happened in tunisia, sometimes these incidents can be sparked by an unanticipatedentio
. what has the attention of analysts that the egyptian prime minister morsi pushed the united states for the release of the blibd sheikh, releasing demonstrations at the same site of the u.s. embassy. they tell fox that the egyptian group takes its name from the omar al rack man from the blind sheikh. >> inspired by the first world trade center bombings some it is a group that has been around a long time. it has some staying power clearly since the early '90s and it is a group we have looked at in the past, we have tracked in the past and we'll continue to ask questions in relation to this particular event to see if there is any connection. >> reporter: there the question is whether there is some degree of coordination or whether the demonstration we're seeing like those in yemen this morning are spontaneous. one group of demonstrators feeding off another. the second question is whether the governments that are relatively weak will have the ability to offer the security the united states needs for its embassies in those countries. congressman rogers told fox a pressing question is wh
are being smaller and one way you do that as is this idea of having crews fly from the united states to overseas operating theaters to replace each other to a policy sometimes called cruise swaps or think swaps. it's hard to do and in fairness to the navy it's already been done on some ships and in fairness to the navy so i think that's the kind of idea that needs to be expanded and generalize because we need more innovative ways of using late lamented -- limited sources of what we are to have. >> going forward regardless of who is president the administration may change but the math remains the same. there are some hard fiscal issues they will have to deal with an and defense is going to have hard strategic choices and i look forward to getting past the election when we can see whatever administration is in charge and what they start to do in terms of making the strategic choices but the longer you wait the tougher the decisions get. this idea that both sides are pursuing, setting a particular budget target and saying that is what we are going to stick to and fill in the strategy be
between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue
to the united states from the other states of the european union over for lunch. okay? germans in the chair, ambassadors from america, from the e.u. states over for lunch. he would then have an american coming in and be the lunchtime entertainment. the american-led come and give the lunchtime talk. i'm not sure who else was there. i would expect the secretary of state was invited, secretary defense. and the central intelligence agency. so i get invited and say okay, i've got a representative from every country in the european union. what makes an interesting speech? i've got it. let's talk about reconditions, interrogations'. so i did. [laughter] and i began the conversation -- i had a great staff at the cia. you are blessed as a people with the talent and morality of the folks in your service and i had a wonderful stuff and great speeches. was rear i would let anybody go with almost irresistible temptation to fool around with someone else's and i would make changes, but this was so important. an awful lot of it i wrote, and i remember page two or page three of the speech, you know, about m
the ascension into the world trade association. she said the united states must normalize trade relations so american business can reap -- speakingrussia's in the new york times, this piece in the weekly review pointing out the democratic party realized one kind of history and it would like to realize another with hillary. it is time for a woman. both conventions there were ghosts of politics past, present, and teacher. next is he larry. caller: i have been watching this for -- ever since it started here. i have been paying close attention throughout my life. my parents were democrats. i have seen them, and i have seen -- i became an independent. i voted for the ban that would best do the job. well, in the last four years i have seen republicans cost the united states a downgrade adventure it's true -- in its credit rating. i have seen them block every opportunity to come to a budget conclusion. i have seen paul ryan and make statements that he knows are false. all through the whole scenario of the last four years. you would know he is lying about fax. as far as mitt romney goes, you're sorr
in united states to shrink from our belief in universal rights. i think it's just the example we get to the rest of the world. and that example because of events in recent years and iraq and afghanistan and elsewhere, the fact that our political system is not functioning as smoothly as it might have at one point, not as smoothly as it could operate, i think we've lost a little bit of our ability to influence others in the world. we have to acknowledge that, and we have to regain that. and then they will perhaps start following some of the examples we've set forward. we are still the most successful country, i think, democracy and the world. i think we been an example to asia, an example to europe. the doctor mentioned the marshall plan. that brought europe to where it is now. and i always am amused that people say this change can't happen. look at my european friends, they are all social democrats and they all have teams in queens. so i mean, it can happen. >> okay, more questions. >> hello everybody. i am from belgium and i'm currently working for the washington quarterly. i'd like
of economic might. according to the annual survey from the world economic forum, the united states of america has slipped to seventh in competitiveness down from number one in 2008 when president obama was elected to the white house. joining me now, lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" on fox business network and a syndicated radio host. and the headline in the albuquerque journal is, dear america: nobody shouts, we're number seven! [laughter] number seven! >> well, we could start a shout too. we're also number 14, number 29 whether we're talking about mathematics and natural sciences test scores. ball of it comes down o this -- but all of it comes down to this reflection of not being able to shout -- megyn: why is the world economic forum telling us we're so much less competitive than we used to be? >> they seem to perceive a certain mistrust on business and this government. i don't know where they got that. they seem to have noticed we're $16 trillion in debt which exceeds our national gross domestic product. megyn: talk about the credit downgrade. >> the credit downgrade which, by the wa
of the united states that still views the united states as a problem, you know, 300-plus million people that view america and the west as an enemy. and so this is the ideology that we continue to combat, and i think that there has been a reticence in recent years to even call it that, to include the word islam when talking about this ideology, but i think it's incredibly important, and not because islam is the problem but modern islam is the solution. when you take a look online and take a look at the messaging out there you see a good deal of intolerance. a lot of the messages has been dialed back. they are not overtly calling for violence as they did pre 9/11. you are still seeing a hatred and utter distain for western values that come through there and i think that continues to power this ideology, and perhaps, again, not driving us to violence, but certainly seeing, you know, probably stopping just short of that, and so the question that i have is, at what point do they just turn that up just a little bit and the violence could begin again? jenna: a lot of work to be done. thank you
or iran or turkey invoking the greatness of their own power and impact and the united states tends to be more future oriented but in this particular case you found that the trauma of the hostage crisis and in the iranian revolution is still very formative and the - of americans who are responsible for the iran policy. >> guest: it is. ambassador ryan crocker told me one time in an interview that they are the most historical were the least historical society. and in this case i think there's still certainly every time they have a negotiation including the most recent one in moscow during the whole litany of grievances, so it is always on their mind. whether the u.s. policy makers realize it or not, the are too. the first years after the revolution clearly the hostage issue was for most american policy makers mind. if the iran contra happens that causes the relationship with the next prior risk and we saw it happen to ronald reagan and over a series of instances where they have spurred u.s. efforts to the rapprochement. there's a great example like to give just on this idea of the mo
terrorists from entering united states. "usa today" on their front page "as time passes." it says here -- host: p.j., a democrat, new jersey. you are up first. caller: i see this event as a different thing. i look at it from an engineering standpoint. this is the first time that steele has ever been melted by fire outside of a blast furnace. there was a tremendous chance to study this event that was not allowed. host: all right, virginia. parker, independent line. good morning. caller: we should be honoring those who lost their lives 10 years ago. and we should be helping those people need help with their health insurance from the blast. host: there is an update on that this morning in "of the baltimore sun." "the 70,000 surviving firefighters and other first responders who worked at the world trade center after the attack will be entitled to free monitoring treatment for some 50 forms of cancer." that is an update this morning on the part of the story. remember, you can also send us your comments via twitter, twitter.com/c-spanwj. or you can send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. john
forces by the date certain that the united states is going to depart. if you stop the recruitment and revet all of the troops you would extend the amount of time before the united states reaches the level where it should say to the military that it's time for us to depart. but the united states says we're going to leave at this date. so the concern would be are you now going to try to accelerate the recruitment and training. the vetting process itself works well it just hasn't been enforce ed. >> do you think that perhaps there is a possibility that the u.s. will pull out earlier? >> no, i don't think so. not at all. i think what's important is the united states and nato have demonstrated a partnership with the afghans that is really unprecedented and unmatched. the united states is going to lean into the wind. they're not going to back off because we have got this trouble spot. they are instituting the rules and regulations they have in place. they are being more aggressive about those and they are also instituting a couple of extra steps in that there might be what is known as t
. the united states handing over control of the prison to the government afghan authorities may let the detainees go. florida police officer was killed while working as part of the president obama's motorcade. officer lawerence was waiting to shut it down. president obama offered condollences to the family. he was a 20 year veteran of the jupiter police department. mayor booker may be in the dog house for saying this . >> it is nauseating to the american people. booker is still getting the cold shoulder from the top democrats. according to the report. maryland governor twice refusing to help clear the field of possible. i don't know what governor maulery would be talking about when he couldn't explain whether people were better off. >> debbie wasserman shultwhere, and he is getting closer to into the good grace. >> are republicans insulting women? we'll examine it? >> and what is joe biden doing buddying up with a female biker sitting on his lap. what the president did may have one upped him. busy day for biden. [ mrs. hutchison ] friday night has always been all fun and games here
>> there is no the community in the united states of america the votes overwhelmingly 90% for one party. in 1996 i realized we voted republican. we only -- were the only race in the united states of america that is done. it's created a system that decided the republican party where republicans say we've got to win without them. so somebody starts with whether they are racist or not racist, people say stupid things in both parties. i used to get into that debate. i don't anymore. i'm just about trying to build people up, not tear people down. so that was a stupid discussion. do i think that is reflective of the whole party? now i don't. i don't publicly that. my point, i'm not trying to defend him. i don't come to these discussions trying to defend republicans nor do i come trying to defend democrats. i comes and here's what i believe and here's what i support. getting back to the point, if were able to look at some kind of model where we to 20% of the african-american committee and we said okay, you be a democrat, get engaged, go work on the hill, be a big fundraiser, to the polic
the way up to the president of the united states? >> actually, the counterterrorist center of the cia did a spectacular job. and that's what really comes down. in the aftermath, the white house and others said well, they didn't tell us enough. no, they told them everything they needed to know to go on a full alert. and the white house didn't do it. >> senior correspondent john miller, former fbi director joins us now. what do you make of this? >> i think what kirk has stumbled into here is a bit of a well-worn path. we knew some of that. what he has added is the granularity of the actual memos and some of the actual words that were there in front of the white house and the national security team. but, you know, richard clark, who is the national security advisor for terrorism, in his book, he said all the lights were blinking red and we were pushing this in front of condi rice every day and it was hard to get any priority on this. in george tenet's book, he details the briefings that were given. so some of this we knew -- >> but it's something that we didn't know? >> there's some in terms
of the united states melted down dramatically. trillions of dollars were lost because the markets did not work properly. secondly, i served as ohio attorney general. why do we need one? i have 1500 people in my office because somebody has to enforce the law. >> i am a colonists. vanist.thinnes i understand it is not the nature of an agency to leave things alone whether they are good or bad. that is part of my concern. that is part of the anxiety. as i have talked about -- to those people who are involved, that is the anxiety that is traded. they feel like whether they are acting in good faith or not, hanging overnd villville their head. >> when you were explaining your calvanist, i hope you are not pointing at me. >> thank you. finally. good to see you again. when you get to me, you know it is almost over. you say in your opening statement that your push for accountability extends beyond mortgage servicing or holding both banks and nonbanks accountable. we had a hearing last week on credit bureaus in particular. i am not sure if you are aware of two pieces of legislation. one would address med
much. may god bless you. may god bless the american people. and may god bless the united states of america. >>> the obama campaign senior adviser says don't expect the same level of voter enthusiasm for president obama this year like it was in 2008. >> this election was always going to be close because we live in a closely divided country. i remind people all the time that just four years ago everyone was talking about the president's landslide and he got 53% of the vote. so let's understand that we live in a very closely divided electorate. we have for quite some time, and this election was, quite frankly, always going to be close. >> meanwhile, mitt romney's reportedly spending the next few days preparing for the upcoming presidential debates which begin next month. as the party gets ready for its national convention in charlotte, north carolina, preparations are well under way at the time warner cable arena in charlotte. hello to you, chris. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. the opening of the democratic national convention is still two days away but there's still plenty pla
. >> absolutely. notwithstanding what any poll may say, the president of the united states is making this address thursday night we feel very confident that the stadium will be full. and so it's really more about the weather than it is about whether you're going to fill a stadium or not. he is the president, making one of the most important speeches given where we are right now at this time. no doubt that the stadium will be full. certainly you don't want people rained on. >> can i ask about the enthusiasm number. you're my numbers guy. so you're prepared for the whole morning. i'll throw it your way. >> what does that really mean? if you look at the enthusiasm numbers the number foreenthusiasm for mitt romney i think is 51% when they asked republicans and when i do anecdotal questioning, everybody seems to be like -- on this election overall. is it a measure of incumbent that people are less enthusiastic or overall? >> i think it's right that it is a measure of overall. this is not a history-making election in the way that 2008 was history-making election. you knew that there was going to be a n
because this law drives a dagger into the heart of the sixth amendment of the united states constitution. it drives a dagger in the most basic right that a criminal defendant has in the courts of our country. that is the right confront witnesses, the right to cross-examination. that's the most basic right. and what this law does treally drives a dagger into that. we have opened up a tremendous slippery slope and a very dangerous precedent. >> the supreme court spoke on this, didn't they? >> the supreme court spoke on it. but they didn't speak on this exact issue. i think it is going going to go back to the supreme court. and the sixth amendment and certainly judge scalia has spoken, has really spoken up on this issue, on the trite confront witnesses and the right to cross-examination. this is extremely dangerous. >> this is what the system is based on. you are a professor. what do you tell your students when they say hearsay can come in, but if it's just hearsay -- what do you tell them in terms of either prosecuting or defending a case that is purely based on this hearsay and circumstan
